Kiva is an organisation that facilitates the loaning of money to impoverished peoples around the World.
Anyone can loan as little as $25 to the person of your choice. Each person asking for a loan sets up a profile and description as to how they would like to use the money to build or enhance a business. They will pay you back over time, which I believe is a wonderful way to build self-worth and empower people that lack oppurtunity. You can choose to take your paid back loan or re-invest in the Program.
What an awesome idea!
